Relations between Primal and DualIf the primal problem isMaximize ct x subject to Ax b, x 0then the dual isMinimize bt y subject to At y c (and y unrestricted)Easy fact:If x is feasible for the primal, and y is feasible for the dual, thenct x bt ySo (primal optimal) (dual optimal) (Weak Duality Theorem)Much less easy fact: (Strong Duality Theorem)If one of the primal and the dual have finite optima, they both have and(primal optimal) (dual optimal)1

The “Inverse Matrix”In the initial simplex tableau, there’s an identity matrix. At a later simplextableau, the “inverse matrix” is the matrix occupying the same space asthat original identity matrix.The inverse matrix conveys all information about the current state of thealgorithm, as we will see.2


Computing dual values from Inverse MatrixIf we have reached the optimal primal tableau, these methods give theoptimal dual values; at earlier iterations, they give a certain “dual” of thecurrent basic feasible solutionMethod 1:Row vector of dual values Row vector of original objective values ofcurrent basic variables (listed in order they appear along basic column ofcurrent tableau) X current inverseMethod 2: (see textbook for this)Write wi for initial basic variable in row i.Value of dual variable yi current z-row coefficient of wi originalobjective coefficient of wi4

But since we imagine M to be very large,this effectively puts no new constraint on y1 . For convenience, we’ll takeM 100.6
